Senator PARRY (12:31 PM) —The coalition support the Veterans’ Affairs Legislation Amendment (2010 Budget Measures) Bill 2010 and related bill. It makes five minor housekeeping amendments to the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986. All the provisions are noncontroversial and we support them. We have one criticism of the process. This has been languishing in the House of Representatives for seven months and we believe that it should have been dealt with in a more timely fashion. Nevertheless, the coalition support the bills.
